[Verse]
A "Bah, humbug!" No,

that's too strong
A 'Cause it is my favorite holiday D But all this year's been a busy blur C B Don't think I have the energy A To add to my already mad rush A Just 'cause it 'tis the season. D The perfect gift for me would be C B Completions and connections left from A Last year, ski shop, A Encounter, most interesting. D Had his number but never the time C B Most of '81 passed along those lines. A So deck those halls,

trim those trees
A Raise up cups of Christmas cheer, D I just need to catch my breath, E A Christmas by myself this year. [Horn]
A A A A A A A A [Verse]
A Calendar picture, frozen landscape, A Chilled this room for

twenty-four days,
D Evergreens, sparkling snow C B Get this winter over with! A Flashback to springtime,

saw him again,
A Would've been good to go for lunch, D Couldn't agree when

we were both free.
C We tried, we said
B
we'd keep in touch.
A Didn't, of course,

'til summertime,
A Out to the beach to his boat could

I join him?
D No, this time it was me, C B Sunburn in the third degree. A Now the calendar's just one page A And, of course,

I am excited.
D Tonight's the night,

I've set my mind
E A Not to do too much about it. [Solo]
A A A A A A A A D G D Bm A D G D Bm A D G D Bm A D G D F#m Em D [Bridge]
A Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! E A But I think I'll miss this one this year. A Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
E But I think I'll miss this
A
one this year.
A Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! E But I think I'll miss this
A
one this year.
A Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! E But I think I'll miss this
A
one this year.
[Verse]
A Hardly dashing through the snow A 'Cause I bundled up too tight. D Last minute, had to do C B A few cards, a few calls, A Because it's R. S. V. P. A No thanks, no party lights. D It's Christmas Eve,

gonna relax,
C B Turned down all of my invites. A Last fall I had a night to myself, A Same guy called,

Halloween party,
D Waited all night

for him to show,
C B This time his car wouldn't go. A Forget it, it's cold,

it's getting late,
A Trudge on home to celebrate D In a quiet way, unwind E A Doing Christmas right this time. [Solo]
A A A A A A A A [Verse]
A A&P has provided me A With the world's smallest turkey D Already in the oven, nice and hot C B Oh dang! Guess what I forgot? A So on with the boots,

back out in the snow
A To the only all-night grocery, D When what to my wondering

eyes should appear
C In the line is that guy
B
I've been chasing all year!
A "I'm spending this

one alone," he said.
A "Need a break;

this year's been crazy."
D I said, "Me too,

but why are you?
C B You mean you forgot cranberries too?" A Then suddenly we laughed and laughed A Caught on to what was happening D That Christmas magic's

brought this tale
E A To a very happy ending! [Solo]
A A A A A A A A D G D Bm A D G D Bm A D G D Bm A D G D F#m Em D [Outro]
A Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
E A Couldn't miss this one this year! A Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
E A Couldn't miss this one this year! A Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
E A Couldn't miss this one this year! A Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
E A Couldn't miss this one this year!
